Say, what can you see? Finding the best views in Washington
April 25, 2014
What makes it special: Georgetown has plenty of shops, restaurants and historic homes, but what it didn’t have (until last year) was a rooftop lounge.
Enter the Observatory atop the seven-story Graham hotel.
The handsome U-shaped bar seats about 140 and offers views of Georgetown University to the north; the Kennedy Center, the Washington Monument and downtown to the south; and Rosslyn to the west.
While you’re there: Enjoy a cigar (the bar has a partnership with Georgetown Tobacco) with the bar’s most popular drinks — a Graham Punch or a bourbon.
If you go: The rooftop bar officially opens for the season on Friday. But lose the flip-flops and tank tops — there’s a dress code — and make reservations. The Graham, 1075 Thomas Jefferson St. NW. 202-337-0900. www.thegrahamgeorgetown.com.
